Los Blancos boss Zinedine Zidane has urged the club directors to beat Barcelona to the signing of Bayern Munich star.
Zidane is keen on adding Bayern Munich defender David Alaba to the ranks and he has told Real Madrid board to go all out for the utility player.
The report from Spain suggests that Real Madrid is preparing to approach the Austrian star.
Alaba has been impressive with the Bundesliga outfit but wants a free challenge having played 342 games for the Bavarian and notched 27 goals for the German Champions in all competitions.
The 27-year-old defender has just a year left on his contract and he is on the radar of many top clubs in Europe with Barcelona also interested in his services.
According to Bild, Zidane has given the green light for Real to launch a bid for Alaba’s signature during the next transfer window.
Alaba considers Real Madrid as one of his favourite options if he chooses to the Allianz Arena at the end of the current campaign.
Real Madrid is gradually planning life without Sergio Ramos in the team.
